Teaching & Learning Conference 2020

Call for Presentations

Submissions Due on October 18, 2018 at Midnight (CST)

Background for Presenters

TLC is an annual conference featuring current best practices in EMS education. The primary objective of this conference is to provide resources, networking opportunities, and information on all aspects of instruction for those teaching or interested in teaching the various levels of EMS providers.


Instructors, trainers, skill assistants, program directors and coordinators, exam monitors, and anyone else interested in educating EMS professionals.

TLC is the only conference in Minnesota dedicated solely to meeting the needs of EMS educators throughout the state and surrounding areas.

Areas of Focus

We are interested in presentations, both in-person and online, on topics that fit within the DOT EMS Instructor curriculum and meet all of the stated objectives for each module. See National Guidelines For Educating EMS Instructors for a list of those areas. We encourage entertaining and informative presentations that engage the audience and make use of graphics, interactions and dialogue. We specifically DO NOT want presentations that simply parrot the material verbatim from the DOT manual.


Accepted speakers will receive free conference admission, hotel accommodations (only for those with more than an hour travel distance), and a $50 honorarium for in-person presentations. An honorarium of $100 will be awarded for online presentations. Additionally, the presenter must agree to allow the TLC committee to house their material for future education. The TLC will not re-sell or allow others to use material submitted.


Presentation Application and Submission Rules

All proposals must be submitted to chris.caulkins@century.edu. Chris will compile the presentation applications for a committee selection process.

Submissions must be received by midnight (CST) on October 18th. Late submissions will be considered if space is available.

Presentations shall be delivered in 45 minutes. This will be strictly enforced.

We rely on the generosity of volunteer presenters heavily. Those asking for an honorarium greater than $50 will be considered on a case-by-case basis. Presenters will be granted complimentary access to the main conference sessions, but are responsible for their own travel, food, and hotel arrangements.



Please submit the following information when applying.


Applicants will be notified via e-mail four to five weeks following the deadline for submissions regarding whether or not their submission was accepted for presentation for the 2019 event.
